AirBedz Lite Truck Bed Air Mattress
Welcome to the 21st century of camping! These days you can get an air mattress for just about every occasion, whether as an emergency guest room bed when unexpected folks arrive for the long weekend, or to make your camping experience even better by transforming the bottom of your tent into a comfy mattress.
But no one had thought to create a truck bed air mattress, one designed to fit your truck bed precisely until Pittman dreamed it up. And with that vision, AirBedz was born--the Original Truck Bed Air Mattress!
Over the years, the company continued to grow and innovate on the original design. Today’s line includes everything from the Original heavy duty blue AirBedz to the lighter and more affordable Lite AirBedz.
Whichever product you design to go with, there’s a reason to pick that one. And the AirBedz Lite is the affordable option that includes a portable DC air pump and backed by a 1 year manufacturer warranty.
A secondary great reason to pick up this air mattress is the optional inflatable wheel well inserts. These air bladders attach to the pockets on the underside of the AirBedz Lite to allow you to use this air mattress outside of your truck bed as well. The innovative design of the AirBedz Lite means it fits your truck bed exactly, covering over the top of the wheel wells and nearly the entire surface area of your truck bed. Being able to use every square inch of your truck bed as a sleeping surface really does transform your camping experience.
But if you ever want to use the mattress in the home too or in a tent on the ground, these inflatable inserts (sold separately) fill in those gaps and make this AirBedz into a more traditional full queen mattress that can work on the floor or the ground!
And this air mattress is thick too! We are talking about a 12 inch thick mattress--that’s a full foot, people. And the Lite has a whooping 800 lbs weight limit and can easily sleep two adults or up to three children.
The AirBedz Lite comes in a green design and has a patch kit with glue included just in case you should encounter any accidents. These patch kits are no joke. When you’re out on the go, should disaster strike, the patch can get you up and going and really save the day. While the high gauge PVC material the AirBedz Lite is made out of is superior to many cheaper products out on the market today, a knife or other sharp object could still damage the surface if you are not careful. It is still an air mattress, after all.
Should you encounter any manufacturer defects, Pittman and AirBedz has you covered, because the Lite is backed by their 1 year limited warranty.
If you’re looking to step up your camping game, this baby is a great place to start.
I remember back in the day, going camping was no big deal for me. When I was super young, still learning the ropes, I could sleep just about anywhere--on the hard ground, with a ruck sack underneath me. No problem.
As I got a bit older, and my body started to wear down or at least yell at me periodically for sleeping in odd positions, I found that without a little sleep aid (read alcohol) going to sleep on the hard earth inside a tent was not something I could easily do, especially for a few days in a row.
Now you might say I’ve gotten wiser, but the truth is that great innovators like Pittman have transformed and upgraded the entire camping situation. These days, sleeping on the hard ground is for the birds. Pittman upgraded the air mattress to fit in the back of your truck bed. And now I don’t have to wake up with a hangover and a throbbing back every time I go camping. Apparently game changer is now spelled A-I-R-B-E-D-Z! And I’m never going back.
Even starting with their cheaper version, you’ll still be impressed with the quality of this superior air mattress. A serious step above the cheaper air mattresses you’re probably familiar with, these AirBedz mattresses have an air coil system, similar to the springs that come in your own home mattress, only filled with air instead of metal spring. These air springs distribute weight across the mattress, preventing that common issue that we’ve all experienced and hated from knock off products of sinking in, often all the way to the ground.
Instead, Pittman made a design that not only fits your truck, but evenly distributed up to 800 pounds worth of weight across the mattress, giving you a firm and comfy night’s rest.
The ability to setup this mattress in the back of your truck bed is also nothing to sneeze at. Sleeping on the ground has some serious setbacks. First, you’ve got all the ground dwelling insects we all love to hate. Secondly, you have moisture and mud. Whether you’re in a tent or on the ground, getting wet from the morning dew or a sudden shower can really wreck your camping trip. But once your elevated up off the ground, many of these issues disappear.
Add on a compatible Truck Bed Tent, like the Rightline Gear Tent, and you’ve got an all in one truck bed tent and mattress system that will make your next camping expedition a dream. I’m all in, and I ain’t never going back. And you won’t want to either. Get your AirBedz Lite today, and for the true camping expert, add on that truck bed tent too to keep yourself dry all night long. Upgrade your next camping trip today, with Midwest Aftermarket.
Transform your Camping Experience
All those years, camping with my father, sleeping on the cold wet earth, cramped inside a single small tent on the ground with my little brother…
Memories. And yet, while I long to recreate these kinds of experiences with my own son today, now I know a bit better. With the new technology on everything from tents to camping bedding, I now am more prepared than ever to take my own kids camping this summer.
I can’t help by wonder. If my back hurt back then when I was just a kid, how did my dad’s back fare after two nights of sleeping on hard packed earth?
Today, I’m rocking a tent loaded up in my truck bed, see my Rightline Gear comment above or the various great tent products designed to fit your truck that we carry. And of course I have my very own AirBedz packed and ready to be inflated the moment we get set up. So no back pain for me the next time we go camping. Trust me when I say that these days this has become a must have for the family man on a camping mission. You will not be disappointed.
